About the work

Profiling and Facing the Titillating Bits is showing the curves and the erogenous zones of a female body. The drawing alludes to the French film, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, directed by Céline Sciamma, whose way of filming women’s desire derails the scopophilic male gaze we are accustomed to.

About the artist:

Ingrid Berthon-Moine lives and works in London. Graduated from MA Fine Art at Goldsmiths University, London (2017).

Berthon-Moine’s work primarily uses sculpture and painting as a way to examine the construction of gender, identity and its behavioural consequences in our society.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
